Claire Danes is glad she agreed to appear in the upcoming TERMINATOR sequel on the spot - because she wasn't convinced she was right for the part and might have changed her mind if she'd waited.

The ROMEO + JULIET star was second choice to appear alongside ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER, after the original choice for the role, Sophie Bush, was deemed too young. As a result she wasn't given any time to consider the offer.

Danes explains, "I was nervous stepping into it but I didn't have time to think about it - they needed me quickly.

"I might have decided not to do it at all if I actually had any time to deliberate and mull over it - I didn't think it was me at all at first."
